NEW RELEASE for preorder BREAKING POINT & Another Excerpt

Breaking Point is the 8th installment to my SEAL Team Heartbreaker Series. There are 6 full-length books and 2 novellas. There will only be 2 more full length books to this series. Breaking Hearts (Bowie's Story) and Breaking Chains (Derrick Armstrong's Story). Since something Derrick was involved with started the series, I have to give him his own story to end it.  Then I'll be moving on to the Building Series. I'll talk more about that in a later post. Much later.  But I'll keep everyone updated.

Breaking Point is a 38,000 word novella. Trish and Langley's story. It's a story of a marriage and everything it takes to be married to a warrior. I fell in love with Langley while I wrote this. I hope you do too.


Here's the blurb: 
 Release date March 15th

-->

After fifteen years of marriage, Trish Marks has hit her breaking point. Her social work caseload has doubled, her son is acting out, and her SEAL husband is never home.   Something has to give. When she’s shot and nearly killed by an irate husband during a home check, it does.

Navy SEAL Senior Chief Petty Officer Langley Marks is five years away from retirement and his pension. He knows there’s trouble in his marriage when he returns home from a deployment to a wife who’s distant, overworked, stressed, and unhappy. He’s only seen her like this once before, when she nearly died after giving birth to their last child. When she’s shot, he re-lives that terrible experience, and feels just as helpless.

But he’s not about to fly away and leave her to fight her way back alone this time. He’s willing to sacrifice it all to prove to her she’s the most important thing in his life. He just has to find a way to make her believe it.  

An Excerpt: 

Trish’s arms tightened around him again. “You’re a good man, Langley.”
  He was silent for a long moment. “One of the Al Qaeda bastards abused her. She gave up his name right away. I think that’s why she wanted to die. The baby was only about three months old. She’d given birth to her alone. And this asshole comes into her home and…” His throat worked again. “I made sure his name was on the hit list of bad guys before I left. If our guys don’t get him, theirs will, maybe. Hopefully the bastard’s already dead, since he never came back.”
“You did all you could, Langley. More than her own people or neighbors did.”
“It’s damn near impossible to figure out who the bad guys are over there, Trish. Some of them would sell their kids to the highest bidder to survive, while others will stay in the trenches and starve with them. We try to build a relationship with them through kindness, and they’re murdered for having contact with us, or turned in by their own neighbors. It’s a no-win for everyone.”
Trish cupped his cheek and looped a leg over his. “There’s nothing you can do about it. And you’re home. Try to lay it down.”
He turned on his side, making the hammock swing wildly, and snuggled her body into his. “You’re right.” His mouth touched hers in the softest of kisses. “I’m home. I’m grateful to be here with you.”
That’s the way it always worked. He told her some non-secret something that was weighing on him, and he turned to her for comfort.
How much more did the secret stuff hurt him? How did the other guys deal with all this without a sounding board and a pair of loving arms to hold and comfort them? She smoothed his hair back from his forehead.
“I’m grateful you’re who you are, Langley.” She tugged up his T-shirt and then her own, so their skin could touch. He unclasped her bra and cupped her breast, then plucked at the nipple, toying with it until it beaded. Sensitive sparks trailed downward to the most intimate part of her body, and she rocked in against him, setting the hammock to swinging again. 
“You know we can’t make love in a hammock. I’m a SEAL, not an acrobat.”
She chuckled. “I thought we could do some heavy petting, then wander in and make love.” She unzipped his khaki shorts and caressed the length of his erection through his briefs while she nuzzled his neck.
“Good thing I’m a sailor and don’t get seasick.” He kissed her again.

She could tell he was lighter for having shared, but it wasn’t the thing that was bothering him most.  It was probably something he’d never be able to share. She couldn’t do anything about that but love him.

Just a plug for my latest release Breaking Out in case you're interested. 



BREAKING OUT (Book 6 of the SEAL Team Heartbreakers) 
Ensign Zac O'Connor "Doc" is one HOT SEAL and the book is 419 pages of emotion, sexual tension, Hot sex, action and more emotion. Two Romances, two families in crisis, & edge of your seat suspense. You'll laugh, you'll cry, and you'll come away glad you read it.


Navy SEAL Zach O’Connor was dumped while he was deployed on a high-risk mission, and the fallout from the breakup nearly cost him his career. Never again will Zach allow his feelings to make him lose sight of what really matters. Not even when his attraction to Piper Bertinelli makes him long for the very thing he’s vowed to avoid.

Violence and heartache have nearly shattered Dr. Piper Bertinelli’s life, and the last thing she needs is to be attracted to a military man scheduled to deploy. Though all Zach wants is a distraction instead of a commitment, Piper is unable to resist the charismatic Naval officer. He makes her feel safe, something more seductive to her than him being a SEAL.

When an overzealous policeman from Piper’s past comes after her, Zach has to make a decision: walk away from the woman who's cracked the shell he built around his heart, or stick by her and possibly risk his career.

And there are other hurdles to face: the family who drove Piper away, but whose secrets may hold the key to understanding why her father was killed.  And someone who’s a greater danger to Piper’s life than an angry cop. The man responsible for it all.  

And don't forget Breaking Free the first book of the series is FREE!  Just in case you've not read any of the series and you want to try it out.

Though drawn to Hawk’s good looks and steady strength, she’s reluctant to get involved with a man in uniform. But with Brett lying in a coma, Hawk may prove the key to what happened to her brother.

Hawk is torn between loyalty to his men and his need to see justice done. When he tries to save a troubled teammate’s career, he unwittingly puts Zoe’s life in danger.

Breaking Point: A SEAL Team Heartbreakers Novella available for Preorder



Breaking Point, the 8th installment of my SEAL Team Heartbreakers Series, is a novella exploring Langley and Trish Marks' story.  It's about marriage in the military and how couples survive the separations, the loneliness, the stress of carrying the load alone and remain together despite it all.
Below is the blurb, the links, and an excerpt.  Breaking Point is available for per-order and will be released March 15th, 2017.   



After fifteen years of marriage, Trish Marks has hit her breaking point. Her social work caseload has doubled, her son is acting out, and her SEAL husband is never home.   Something has to give. When she’s shot and nearly killed by an irate husband during a home check, it does.

He’s only seen her like this once before, when she nearly died after giving birth to their last child. When she’s shot, he re-lives that terrible experience, and feels just as helpless.

But he’s not about to fly away and leave her to fight her way back alone this time. He’s willing to sacrifice it all to prove to her she’s the most important thing in his life. He just has to find a way to make her believe it.

An excerpt: 

  The house was silent. He wandered through the kitchen into the living room. The hall was dark, and all the bedroom doors were closed.


He stopped at Jessica’s room and eased the door open. She lay curled on her bed, her dark hair mussed, and her eyes were red and swollen.
He bypassed Tad’s door. He’d save the confrontation with his son for later. In the master bedroom, Trish had several piles of clothing on the floor. She was cleaning out the closet.
He scanned the items and, seeing none of his stuff in the pile, breathed a sigh relief. For a minute he thought she might be tossing him out.
“Anna said there was an issue this morning with Tad.”
“He slammed Jessica’s camera onto the floor as hard as he could and broke it. She took a picture of him after he got out of the shower dressed in a towel, and he was enraged.”
She ran her fingers through her short cap of hair. He liked the new cut. It left her slender neck bare, and every time she turned her back, he wanted to press a kiss to that vulnerable, tender spot at her nape. 
“Jess cried herself to sleep. And he’s not the least bit sorry.”
“I’ll go in and talk to him.”
“I’ve never seen him like this, Langley. He’s short-tempered, surly, and the way he broke the camera, it was violent.” He read worry and hurt in her expression.
Langley reached for her, and she came into his arms. She laid her head against his shoulder like she was exhausted. “There’s something going on with him, Langley.”
He debated whether or not to pile more on, or just offer comfort. But if they didn’t face what was going on between them…
“There’s something going on with us, and he knows it. Talk to me, Trish.”
She went completely still against him. “It won’t do either of us any good to say the words out loud. Because there’s nothing either of us can do or say to change things.”
“Venting might help you.”
“We’ll just come right back to where we are, because there’s no way of changing things. We’re both locked into our paychecks, and we have to have the money.”
Shocked, he was silent for a long moment. “You want to quit your job?”
“Yes, I do.  They’ve doubled our caseloads, and I can barely breathe at work. The girls are good, but I can’t give enough attention to Tad. He clearly resents me, and I don’t understand why.”
“It isn’t you he resents, Trish. It’s me. I just got back three weeks ago, and I’m already back to work. You’re just an easier target because you’re here and I’m not.”
She leaned back to look up at him. “What do you plan to do about that?”
“The only thing I can. Talk to him.”  He’d never laid a hand on any of his kids but… “Unless you’d rather I spank his ass for breaking the camera.”
Her eyes widened at the suggestion. “No. Of course not. I’ve already worked out a punishment. He has to work off the cost of another camera, and he can’t have his X-box controls back until he does.”
He pushed a little. “It isn’t just the kids, is it?”
“No. It’s—everything, Langley. I’m tired of dealing with everything alone.” She flinched and closed her eyes. “I know that doesn’t sound like a SEAL’s good little wife, but Tad is wearing me down. Short of locking him in his room and sliding his food under the door, I don’t know what else to do.”
“I’ll talk to him. See if I can’t encourage an attitude adjustment.”
“Thank you. I have to go to work.” She pulled away and grabbed her purse.
This wedge between them refused to budge. “I love you, Trish. I know some of the guys I’ve been teamed with in the past weren’t always faithful, but I’ve never strayed. You’re the only woman I want. I don’t want to lose you.”
“I don’t want us to lose each other, Langley. But I can’t be three-quarters of a whole anymore.”
Ouch, that hurt, more than a little.
“You have to find a way to pull your weight with your son. I can’t do it alone anymore.”
He followed her through the house to the front door while she collected her daily planner from the small office at the front of the house. She turned at the front door to look back at him.
“How long are you going to have to work weekends?” he asked.
“I don’t know. I wish I could say this wasn’t the new norm, but working five days a week just doesn’t cut it. I have to do four home visits today, because it’s the only time the parents are home for me to speak to them.”
He nodded. “Be careful, Trish.”
“I will.” She picked up a sweater draped over the back of the couch and slipped it on.
He caught her arm when she started out the door. There had to be some physical contact between them. It was all he had right now. “I like the new haircut. It leaves that sweet spot right back here free.” He brushed his fingertips down her neck. “I want to kiss you there every time I’m behind you.” He bent his head and demonstrated, taking his time, and was rewarded when she shivered.
She turned to look over her shoulder at him, her pale blue eyes, scanning his face.  “Talk to Tad and see if you can make some headway with him.” She gripped his chin, rose on tiptoe and kissed him. “I may ask you do that again tonight.”
He grinned and caught back a sigh of relief. At least she was still open to his sexual overtures. But then they’d always had a strong physical connection. When he was home. “I’m on it. I promise.”
She nodded, opened the door and strode down the front steps. Once behind the wheel, and noticing him still standing at the door watching her, she threw up a hand in a small wave.
He closed the door. It was time to deal with Tad. Right now. And if it took lighting up his son’s ass, he’d do it. He wouldn’t like it, but he’d do it.

If you're interested in humorous Paranormal Romance I have a Novella in Robyn Peterman's Magic and Mayhem series. Another will be coming in June for the same series. So in a sense I'm writing a series within a series.  Have Wand, Will Travel is a detective agency. They have agents of multi-abilities and species. Each of my characters gets to stretch their paranormal muscle in a humorous way. The next book of the series will be Have Wand, Will Travel: Once Bitten, Twice Shy. 



Here's the blurb and the link:

A soul-sucking wand, a witch, a vampire and a hellhound.  ‘Nuff said.  

Private detective and gifted witch Zaira O’Shea has built her reputation on her ability to always find her relic, magical device, or man. When the Witches’ Council hires her to find and return a stolen wand, she can’t refuse, and she’s eager to recover the device. Until the clues lead her to a vampire with fallen-angel good looks, and talents that don’t require a bite to lead her into temptation.
History professor and vampire Christophe Bakas has brushed off his cat burglar skills to steal a powerful wand for the Vampire Council, but only because they are holding his uncle hostage. When he meets Zaira, he hopes he’s found someone who’ll help with the rescue. But from their first teleportation he’s hooked on more than her flying skills.

The more they learn about the wand, the more Chris and Zaira believe neither council can be trusted with the dangerous device. With both councils closing in, they’re forced to go on the run. Only the vacationing Baba Yaga can make sure the wand isn’t used to destroy the careful balance between witch and vampire kind. If they can find her.
